    @LastWeekTonight How about telling whole world that nearby country from EU named Latvia have 2 types of citizenship status, ones are normal citizens and others are 'Aliens', its literally is being written in the passport: Alien's Passport. those people has limited rights, does not have voting rights or can not be elected and its 10,1% of total population of Latvia... If you talk about human rights, lets' start with EU first, since it is happening for 30 years now and none in EU cares!

    NLid hates my comments today, apparently. WRT the "not everything connected to Godwin was bad" thing... It is literally true, there is such a thing as the "Godwin ate sugar" fallacy, and Godwin is, for instance, known to have been a vegetarian. So, yes, Godwin wasn't a comic book villain: he was a real person, and real people, almost by necessity, have at least some positive traits. This is especially true for politicians, since they wouldn't be able to ascend to any sort of power if they weren't able to connect to others to some extent. Same for the Not So Funny regime: the Not So Funny public works program and infrastructure renewal projects genuinely helped Germany come back from a devastating defeat in WWI and once again become a large world power in a surprisingly short time frame. Those are *not the things we blame Godwin for* - and if you want to praise the Not So Funnies for them, specifically, I believe it is forgivable to do so, if only to give context to the popularity of Godwin the *elected politician* and the rise of the Not So Funny movement in general. In fact, I think it is especially important to remember all the *good* stuff the Not So Funnies did, because *the good does not condone the bad* and there is a tendency to think that if somebody does *some* good then they cannot be bad. THey can. They absolutely can. Maybe NLid hats Godwin's law?

    Greetings from a Belarussian Jew! Almost everything John said here is a LIE. Shameless, stinking lies from the enemies of Belarus. The only truth here was that Belarus is really not a democratic country (did anybody try to hide that?), and that Lukashenko isn't very clever - all Belarussians have laughed at his fails like "Bykov's poems" (Belarussian writer Vasil Bykov never wrote poems) or "Skaryna worked in Petersburg" (the famous Belarussian printer Francisc Skaryna lived when there was no St. Petersburg yet). Lukashenko didn't call himself "the last dictator of Europe", it were Europeans, and that's a lie. He isn't a "dictator", he's just a post-Soviet leader. The difference is huge, because Soviet leaders always cared about the people, and dictators only cared about themselves and their gangs. Lukashenko have WON the August 2020 elections. The stupid Western marionette Tikhanovskaya couldn't win because nobody even KNEW about her! She didn't have even an election campaign! All this pressure on Belarus is a shameless attempt to engineer another "colored revolution" like the West did in Ukraine, and look at the Ukraine now - it's almost destroyed by the American marionettes!!! Nobody have "hijacked" the Ryanair plane. When a message about any bomb arrives, ATC has to report about that to the pilots, and THE PILOTS have made a decision to turn to Minsk. Yes, there was a jet fighter, but it just guarded the plane for security reasons. Neither the fighter not the ATC have demanded to land in Minsk - it was the pilots' decision. Your shameless mass media are LYING to you! So do NOT buy these teddy-bears, because they are just another way to fuel the shameless "colored revolution" in Belarus. Your money will be used to train the terrorists and to engineer a coup against the LEGITIMATE leader of another country which did absolutely nothing wrong to you or your country. Let John collect these bears himself :)

      ​@Ruslan R. I never lie. And I really live in Belarus. Nobody pays me for telling the truth (only the liars like John get paid). Lukashenko have really won, that's OBVIOUS to everyone capable of thinking. Army and police support him, don't they? Pensioneers also voted for him, because they can survive now and perfectly know that capitalism would steal their pensions and raise the utility costs. Peasants also voted for him, because he's a former peasant :) So WHO is against him? Just the businessmen, some IT people and students. But they are minority! Belarus still has no political opposition, since such opposition would be Belarussians who want to make their country better and have some plans to achieve that. Belarussian "opposition" is just paid Western marionettes and the brainwashed people, especially youngsters. All the "protests" were just another "colored revolution" attempt, but we aren't that stupid.
